    Everyone got their kit already???? Are you loving it as much as I do? I bet you do!!!!

    Here's a card I made with this gorgeous kit
    --_zpsbb7ee239.jpg
    And here's how I did it:
    0_zpsa98b8026.jpg
    For the base of my card, I cut a white piece of cardstock at 12 x 5.7
    5.7 is the hight of my card.

    1_zps4b0fee72.jpg
    I added some papersoft ink around the edges and gave it a spritz with water, to bleed a little.

    The I randomly added some acrylic paint with my finger. Just to give it some texture.
    dried it with a heatgun.

    here's what it looks like in close up.

    4_zpsf614ef29.jpg
    I cut a strip of PP at 5.6 x 1.6 Distressed and inked the edges.

    5_zpsd46f0e1e.jpg
    Glued at the left side on my card.

    6_zps9d2ff0a4.jpg
    I cut another piece of PP at 5.6 x 5.1 and cut out the middlest part, for using on another project.

    7_zps5c3f41f1.jpg
    Distressed the edges and glued it like in the picture. The right side is a little overlapping.

    8_zpsd2a93ce4.jpg
    I cut another piece of PP at 5.6 x 4.2 Distressed and inked the edges.

    9_zps9a7e92dc.jpg
    I flipped it over and added glue, half an inch from the left side to what you can see in this picture.

    10_zpsbfacfe34.jpg
    I glued it in place.

    11_zps87463a0a.jpg
    I cut two little strips

    12_zps71c3f9f6.jpg
    and glued them in the upper right coer behind my curled back paper. At the left side I glued a strip of lace TO MY CARD. (<—This is important)

    13_zps7469e120.jpg
    I cut a little strip and half a circle, like in the picture and gently distressed the edges.

    14_zps16d357bf.jpg
    Then I took this wonderful paintable notecard and 3 colors of distress ink and start watercoloring
    the image.

    15_zpsabd7a6f1.jpg
    I added the tiny strip, I cut earlier, and some leaves, which I took off later on. I glued two layers cardboard (from the box my kit came it) to the back of the notecard. I didn't glued the notecard to my card yet.

    17_zps3643d0e4.jpg
    I selected my embellies.

    18_zpsbb05aa57.jpg
    I cut another 2 strips which I trimmed like in the picture. Distressed and inked their edges.

    19_zps788396fa.jpg
    I glued the 2 banner strips at the left side. Wrapped some cord around my note card and glued
    the note card in place. I cut the metal leaves apart and glued them in the upper right coer.

    20mon_zps959c78c2.jpg
    I then added the half circle to the top of my notecard and place a pearl to pretty it up a bit.

    21mon_zps1010257d.jpg
    I added some masking for extra interest. And added, randomly, some brush strokes with Gesso.

    22mon_zps1e61b2e6.jpg
    I tied some cord into a bow, and glued it to the (already) wrapped around cord.
    Die cut a flourish and added some pearls at the bottom of the notecard. And for finishing touch, I loaded a small brush with Silks in Emperor's gold and flicked it on my card and called it…done!

        Pauline, so much goes into your little cards!! I love it!

        "Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

                      This design is the perfect road map for a birthday card for my oldest son.
                      I used a square of burlap for one of the layers and I tied twine around the joual card. A Prima wood embellie treated with Inka Gold in Old Gold and Copper was my finishing touch on a masculine card.

                      Paulien, thanks so much for your tutorial!!!!!!!!
